Zarda Bar-B-Q Burnt Ends
· 1 (8 to 10-pound) beef brisket
· Bar-B-Q Rub
· Grilling Sauce

Prepare smoker for cooking, heating to 180 to 200 degrees F.  Season brisket with Zarda Bar-B-Q Rub on both sides and then place in smoker. Smoke for 8 hours. Remove brisket and leave smoker on. Cut burnt ends (blackened portion) from lean section of smoked brisket and then chop into bite-sized cubes. Place chopped pieces in a large pan with holes. Smoke for 1 1/2 hours, or until dried out. Remove pan from smoker and transfer brisket cubes to a large pan without any holes. Stir in Zarda Grilling Sauce, and then return to the smoker for an additional 1 1/2 hours. Serve with Zarda's World Famous Baked Beans and Oil and Vinegar Cole Slaw.
